Speed limits on classical chaos

  title={Speed limits on classical chaos},
  author={Swetamber Das and Jason R. Green},
Uncertainty in the initial conditions of dynamical systems can cause exponentially fast divergence of trajectories, a signature of deterministic chaos. Here, we derive a classical uncertainty relation that sets a speed limit on the rates of local observables underlying this behavior. For systems with a time-invariant stability matrix, this general speed limit simplifies to classical analogues of the Mandelstam-Tamm versions of the time-energy uncertainty relation. This classical bound derives…

Unifying Quantum and Classical Speed Limits on Observables
The presence of noise or the interaction with an environment can radically change the dynamics of observables of an otherwise isolated quantum system. We derive a bound on the speed with which
Smooth Dynamics and New Theoretical Ideas in Nonequilibrium Statistical Mechanics
This paper reviews various applications of the theory of smooth dynamical systems to conceptual problems of nonequilibrium statistical mecanics. We adopt a new point of view which has emerged
Quantum speed limits in open system dynamics.
A time-energy uncertainty relation is derived for open quantum systems undergoing a general, completely positive, and trace preserving evolution which provides a bound to the quantum speed limit.
Critical fluctuations and slowing down of chaos
Nonlinear dynamics is leveraged to quantify the role of chaos in the emergence of this critical phenomenon, and results are symptomatic of a critical slowing down of chaos that sits at the root of the authors' statistical understanding of the liquid–vapor critical point.
Dissipation Function: Nonequilibrium Physics and Dynamical Systems
The relation between linear and exact response is investigated, pointing out conditions for the validity of the response theory, as well as difficulties and opportunities for the physical interpretation of certain formal results.
Geometric structure and geodesic in a solvable model of nonequilibrium process.
An exactly solvable model of a driven dissipative system (generalized nonautonomous Ornstein-Uhlenbeck process) is employed and the evolution of this system is investigated in a statistical metric space where the distance between two points quantifies the change in information along a trajectory of the PDFs.
The maximum speed of dynamical evolution
Nonequilibrium uncertainty principle from information geometry
With a statistical measure of distance, we derive a classical uncertainty relation for processes traversing nonequilibrium states both transiently and irreversibly. The geometric uncertainty
Generalized uncertainty relations: Theory, examples, and Lorentz invariance
The quantum-mechanical framework in which observables are associated with Hermitian operators is too narrow to discuss measurements of such important physical quantities as elapsed time or
